Copes with anything from a tough evening run to a demanding snow shoe trip or a gruelling cross-country ski session. Its fine construction makes the Soma Cap Light perfect for outdoor sports in the winter season. A Unique 3-D textile structure at the forehead and temples traps perspiration. When you stop sweating the specially designed system provides optimum insulation against the cold. At the ears a honeycomb structure is used to ensure that this sensitive area is kept warm without impairing hearing.  

During recovery cold ambient air represents no overcooling risk factor because the warm air inside the InnerAirChannels form an insulating cushion. During recovery the cooling down process is interrupted by the lack of sweat. The air in both channles serves to warm and protect using the body`s own warmth to create a body aura: a protective shell that wards off the influence of cold. The 3D-BionocSphere System begins warming when sweat is absent.  

During activity sweat forms a line of moisture on the skin. Drops are absorbed by the SweatTraps and conducted into the Evaporation Surface Expander. The evaporation occurs in three ways activated by body heat; On the skin for cooling In the SweatTraps to process excess moisture and in the Evaporation Surface Expander where the excess is finally evaporated. SkinNODOR Technology The gradual release of ions which are activated by body heat is the key to the effectiveness of SkinNODOR. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin`s ecosystem. In other words SkinNODOR is microbacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits microbacterial growth) rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore allergic reactions do not occur. SkinNODOR is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit. Reduce sweating. But don`t prevent it!Don`t waste a drop: sweat is too precious to dispose of completely. The skin requires a certain level of moisture in order to cool down. Evaporation cooling only starts to drive the body temperature down when moisture on the skin evaporates. Conventional functional underwear design has tended to ignore this vital fact by absorbing moisture completely and keeping the body as dry as possible. Big Mistake. Dry skin may feel good but it lacks the ability to cool naturally.

Quite thick synthetic beanie wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable. Really nice styling - I know that doesn`t matter to everyone!

  • AirConditioningSpot at the temples. The temples sweat quickly and heavily. To process this sweat a fine knit mesh allows moisture to pass through. Due to the body`s warmth sweat evaporatesand is moved to the outside. The risk of cooling down does not exist in this small area.
  • SweatTraps: Trap perspiration before you start to feel it. Wick perspiration away where it can evaporate using the dynamics of heat. A film of perspiration - too thin to be noticable - is left behind to cool the skin.
  • Insulation Zones. A great deal of heat is released through the top of the head. Insulation zones in this area provide optimal climate management.
  • Innerlap AirConditioningZone woven mesh with zero insulation function allows air to circulate and aides cooling as soon as you start to sweat.  
  • 3D-Bionic-Sphere-System on the forehead. A labyrinth of chambers and channels that store warm air insulating against the cold. SweatTraps trap the excess perspiration quickly and move it to the outside. Only begins to cool once you are sweating.
  • EarComp Zones. Ensures optimum insulation without impairing hearing.

  • Fabric Specification Skin NODOR Skin NODOR is a particularly soft new yarn with exceptional temperature optimizing properties. It features a polymeric matrix incorporating a bacteriostatic agent that will not transfer to the skin. Excessive growth of bacteria on the skin and in clothing can cause unpleasant odor. Skin NODOR helps maintain the skin`s natural bacterial environment i.e. Skin NODOR has a bacteriostatic effect. Skin NODOR works thanks to the continual reaction of ions within the fiber. This effectively inhibits the activity of microorganisms responsible for the build-up of bacteria and odor.The unique bacteriostatic ingredient in the polymer matrix prevents allergic reactions. It is an integral component of the fiber rather than merely coating the surface meaning the ingredient is not transferred to the skin.Skin NODOR is an especially robust and long-wearing fabric that offers protection from microbial contamination. Even after repeated washing it does not lose its bacteriostatic properties retaining them for the entire life of the item of clothing.Skin NODOR incorporates a special inorganic anti-bacterial ingredient. This feature effectively retards the growth of the two most important types of bacteria: Gram-positive (Staphylococcus Aureus) and Gram-negative (K. Pneumonia). Because Skin NODOR is not bactericidal (i.e. it doesn’t kill bacteria) it does not destroy the natural bacterial environment of healthy skin.Products made with Skin NODOR are unbelievably soft and extremely comfortable. The supple micro-fiber hugs the body adapting to any shape. This guarantees optimal fit.
